Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
If you any privacy-specific concerns about how we use your contact information then please send us an enquiry using our contact form and we will respond to your query as soon as possible.
How we protect your data
Our website uses a secure encrypted connection for all communications between you and our website. This can be evidenced by the padlock icon displayed in your browser near our website address (the exact location will vary between different browsers and platforms). This secure encryption involves the use of an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption certificate enable on our website.
SumUp Payment Gateway
The following is an extract from the SumUp help article about Security, read full article. (Please note this article is directed at merchants who accept payments through SumUp but still gives information relevant to our customers using this payment method)
To protect your transactions from unauthorised access by third parties, SumUp operates in accordance with the highest card payment industry security standards:
- PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is the highest data security standard used in the credit card industry concerning data transfer and data storage.
- SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) are ‘encryption protocols’ that protect data that is transmitted over the internet. We are using 256-bit encryption, the highest possible level at present.
- PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) is an international standard for secure personal data storage.
We carry out regular security audits on our platform and website components. This includes the installation of any security updates as and when required. Various methods are used to alert our website administrator to available security updates for our platform and its component parts.
Our website is hosted on a platform that provides free and fast support to prevent security issues and takes daily backups of our website and data so that, should the worst happen, we are able to restore a previously secure version of our website.
What data breach procedures we have in place
Should the worst happen and we detect a data breach we will take all necessary steps to protect your data. This may involve blocking access to our entire website or individual user accounts as required.
We will investigate the particulars of the data breach to identify all data that may have been accessed and will notify our customers if we know or suspect that their data may have been compromised.
We will notify the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) about the data breach following the regulatory procedures.
We will make any changes to our systems to ensure that the same type of data breach cannot happen again.
